Toast and Eggs for Breakfast

Considering calorie recommendations, nutritionists and dietitians alike suggest eating a 400-calorie breakfast to stay on the healthy side. This does not mean subsisting on gruel and tasteless mush. For breakfast, it is recommended that you eat a serving of complex carbs, whole grains, vegetables, and lean protein. This means that your buttered muffin and bacon and eggs combo is out.

Try this breakfast by the Food Network Test Kitchen for a delicious start to your day - at only 391 calories. Not bad for a meal that's rich in iron, protein, and vitamins B and C.
